And that is the charm between you and I;
the knowledge that each of us exists
so brilliantly whole as creatures
of this heartbeat world.
And then, when we do have each other,
when we are together,
the edges of the world will glow gentle
and its colours will saturate with the thrill of life
enhanced and amplified,
but not created; this is the charm.
